Tracy has tagged me with a rather formidable challenge. Formidable because it requires the use of my middle name and posting a fact about myself beginning with every letter of the name. Well, my middle name has nine letter with a cumbersome "x" towards the middle (What am I going to write? X-rays are beautiful or Xanadu is my favorite movie? I think NOT!). I contacted Tracy, and with her permission I will cheat a little. I will be a TOTAL chicken and use "Thomas" as the name to answer the tag.
Here are the rules:
1. You have to post the rules before you give your answers.
2. You must list one fact about yourself beginning with each letter of your middle name. (If you don't have a middle name, use your maiden name).
3. After you are tagged, you need to update your blog with your middle name and your answers.
4. At the end of your blog post, you need to tag one person for each letter of your middle name. (Be sure to leave them a comment telling them they've been tagged and that they need to read your blog for details.)
T - Tolerance for other people's imperfections in larger doses is what I shall exercise this Lent. Hopefully apply that same level of patience beyond Easter - year round.
H - Home for me is somewhere in New England. Or, as Rita so graciously put it, Mrs. Tom and I should someday move to United Kingdom and live the real thing. LOL! Bless you Rita!
O - Oscar the Grouch you may call me when I'm sleep-deprived.
M - My life, even when recollecting some of my first memories as a child, has been mostly about the search for God.
A - Animals and nature - I LOVE them both!
S - Shaved off my goatee and I'm growing another one. LOL! (Well trimmed, of coarse).
Okay, you little rascals, if you read this and are courageous enough to answer the challenge, consider yourself tagged!
